Another Restaurant Project Bites the Dust: Table 18


Veteran Dallas restaurateur Jack Baum and business partner Mort Meyerson have pulled the plug on their upscale restaurant, Table 18. The 10,000 square foot restaurant, originally called Meyerson’s, was scheduled to open in the new Rosewood Court tower across from the Ritz-Carlton. Chef David Gilbert, formerly of Luqa, another ill-fated restaurant, has been working on the project for over a year.  “We have decided not to open in this economy,” said Baum. “It just doesn’t’ make sense to build a new brand in this economy.” So, what happens to chef Gilbert? “David is a smart, creative chef,” said Baum. “I think by January or February he will announce something good.”
